Blissful Dehydrating Journey ~ Dried CHIPS ~ 3 ways!

Happy Wednesday!  I have a few things to share with you today including these three Dehydrated Ideas and Recipes!  Yes, I have been busy with my Early Christmas new Excalibur Dehydrator!  First up...Corn Chips!  Or Corn Tortillas that I made at home!  Here's what I used...
4 C Corn
1/4 C Flax Seeds (Grinded Myself)
3 Small Sweet Yellow Bell Peppers
1 Small Onion
1/2 tea Cumin
1/2 tea Cayenne
I also added 1/2 T of Garden of Life's Original Flavor of their Raw Perfect Food!  These turned out really good...especially for my first attempt.  Next time I think I will add some Lime Juice and also make the 'batter' thicker as these were pretty thin.

Next up...Sea Salt & Vinegar Zucchini Chips!

3 Small or Mini Zuke's
1 T Wildtree Basil Pesto Grapeseed Oil
2 T Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tea Garlic Flavored Sea Salt (or Sea Salt - plain)

These were neat, too, but next time I will be adding more Apple Cider Vinegar as I LOVE vinegar.

And finally, I made these Banana Chips for my husband and my sister as they both love bananas.  Many of you know my trials and tribulations with bananas so I haven't tried them YET but I might get brave SOON!  I have been doing well with 1/4 to 1/2 of a banana that has already been frozen added to my smoothies, tho, so I am pretty proud about that! 

I didn't do ANYTHING to these Banana Slices...they are naked and dried as-is.

Question of the Day...What do you think I should try dehydrating next?


  1. My daughter loves banana chips. I think the ones here are deep fried though - not all that healthy.

    1. What kind of oil do you use to deep fry things there - generally speaking?

  2. All of these recipes look great and winter is such a great time to dehydrate since it warms the kitchen up.

    1. Thanks! And guess what! I have started using my NuNaturals again! Added a few drops to oatmeal today...might post that over the weekend :)

  3. WOW - look at you! I am very inspired by you and your dehydrating. I usually make the same old things in mine (crackers, granola & kale chips). Zucchini chips? FUN! Ooh and try the banana chips - I bet you'll like them =)

    1. Awww thanks! I tried one of the Banana was too sweet! Eeeek! Hubby thought they were too and he loves bananas (unlike me!) LOL
